This course provides hands-on Java 11 training for developers who have little or no prior working knowledge of object-oriented programming languages such as C, COBOL, and 4GL. You will learn the best practices for writing great object-oriented programs in Java 11, using sound development techniques, new improved features for better performance, and new capabilities for addressing rapid application development. Special emphasis is placed on object oriented concepts and best practices.
